London: Muslims Riot In Support Of Palestinians

From Jihad Watch:


Welcome to the wonderful new multicultural London. This is all part of the "Palestinians'" grievance theater -- if they mount a protest this big, they must have some serious grievances, no? And if they turn violent, well, we better give them what we want, no? And Gordon Brown is trying to do just that. In all the excitement, no one will remember the rocket attacks from Gaza that terrorized Israeli civilians. No, that was just fine.

"Palestinians to vent their fury in London all week," by Rashid Razaq and Felix Allen in the Evening Standard, December 30 (thanks to James):

PALESTINIANS and their supporters are planning a week-long series of protests in London ending in a Trafalgar Square rally of up to 5,000 demonstrators, the Standard can reveal.

Riot police have been placed on standby after about 1,000 protesters besieged the Israeli Embassy in Kensington for the second day of angry and heated demonstrations.

Seven people were arrested for public order offences, including assault on a police officer, after violence flared when a group of men attempted to scale the embassy gates on Palace Green.

Fireworks, sticks and smoke bombs were hurled at officers guarding the building and one policeman's helmet was set alight to loud cheers from the crowd.

The largely peaceful demonstration flared when protesters kicked down safety barriers after the police tried to hold them back from storming the embassy.

Holding placards, waving Palestinian flags and chanting "Free, free Palestine", the rally attracted Palestinian, Arab, Muslim and anti-war groups as well as nine rabbis from the International Jewish Anti-Zionist Network....

Ishmail Patel, chairman of Palestinian group Friends of Al-Aqsa, said the campaign's intention is to force the British government to intervene. He said: "Britain is a pivotal player with the ability to put pressure on the Israeli government to stop the killing of innocent civilians. Hopefully these protests should make an impact on the British government that not enough is being done to stop the bloodshed."...

Well this is totally justified.
I mean we all remember the jew riots during the three years since Israel abandoned Gaza, and 6000 rockets launched by the terribly provoked HAMAS landed in Israel proper.

Where were they to protest when Mumbai was attacked by terrorists? Where were they to protest when Israeli civilians were killed by terrorists? Shame on them!

The most telling thing to come out of this situation so far is that Egypt has clearly stated they will give no quarter to Hamas.

When the policies of Egypt and Israel are almost identical, Hamas has a real problem.

Pastorius said...

Where is the whole world to protest the Egyptians opening fire on Palestinians are the border?

Strange silence, and it speaks volumes.

Kiddo said...

Pastorius, I was wondering the very same thing, actually.

Pastorius said...

Human Rights is not the reason for the vast opposition to Israel. Instead, this incident proves that anti-Semitism is the problem.

1982, Sabra and Shatilla, 600-2000 dead.
Months later Assad kills 20-30k in Hama Syria, burying the dead under asphalt roads as entire neighborhoods are surrounded and leveled by Syrian artillery.

Compare and contrast the results, class.

Pastorius said...

People have been declaring Sharon a war criminal for 26 years over Sabra/Shatilla. No one even remembers the Hama Rules.

It's all blood under the bridge.
